Sleep Regulates Cocaine Craving
Dr. Yanhua Huang received her PhD in Neuroscience from Johns Hopkins University, and completed her postdoctoral training at Harvard Medical School and Washington State University. Her work is focused on the neural mechanisms by which sleep regulates the brain reward circuitry. Her lab uses rodent models and a multidisciplinary approach including brain slice electrophysiology, EEG recordings, molecular biology, and behavioral assays. Dr.
Clinical Grand Rounds - Peer Support: The Face of Recovery
Peer Support is a system of giving and receiving help founded on key principles of respect, shared responsibility, and mutual agreement of what is helpful. It is about understanding another’s situation empathetically through the shared experience of emotional and psychological pain. Peer support for people with similar life experiences (e.g., people who’ve lost children, people with addictions, people with mental health challenges, etc.) has proven to be tremendously important towards helping many move through difficult situations.
Center for Sleep and Circadian Science Grand Rounds
Join us for the next Center for Sleep and Circadian Science Grand Rounds when Dr. Lana Chahine will present an approach to the evaluation, diagnosis, and counseling of individuals with “idiopathic” REM Behavior Disorder (RBD). Dr. Chahine will review the data supporting RBD as a marker of synucleinopathy and discuss the potential implications of RBD in individuals with established synucleinopathies.

Cognitive Enhancement for Schizophrenia: Evidence, Mechanisms, and Implementation
Dr. Shaun Eack's primary interests include the development, implementation, and evaluation of psychosocial treatment methodologies to improve the care of people with schizophrenia and related disorders. He is also interested in the biopsychosocial factors that contribute to recovery and psychosocial outcomes among people with schizophrenia and related disorders, and how the elucidation of these factors can serve to aid novel treatment development efforts. In addition, Dr.
Current Models for the Genetic Basis of Autism Spectrum Disorder
For the past 20 years Dr. Bernie Devlin's Lab has had two major foci, the development or refinement of statistical methods for the analysis of genetic data and the implementation of such methods to discover the genetic basis of disease and related phenotypes. The Devlin Lab developed statistical methods appropriate for large-scale genetic studies and applied them and other methods to characterize the genetic basis of autism spectrum disorder and schizophrenia, among others. Recently Dr.
